During Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, the Golden State Warriors showed that they didn’t miss Kevin Durant on the floor at all as they cruised to a double-digit victory.
Seth Curry seems to know why that is.
The Portland Trail Blazers guard and brother to Stephen Curry was speaking to The Athletic’s Sam Amick and he seemed to take a massive shot at the absence of Kevin Durant and how the Warriors play better without him.
“I think they are harder to guard (without Durant),” Curry said. “They move around faster when he’s not out there. They’re definitely not a better team, but they’re harder to guard. Obviously, they play a different style of basketball when Steph and Klay (Thompson) are the focal points offensively, and we haven’t played that team in a while. We’ve got to reshift our focus and make some adjustments coming into Game 2.”
One things for sure, the Warriors certainly know how to win when Kevin Durant is out.
The Trail Blazers will try desperately to tie this series during Game 2 tonight.
